| For all comedy
This show, will showcase multiple generations of comedy. You cannot like one single generation of comedy and completely enjoy the show, but that's also the point. Comedy evolves. Whether you have clean comedians, or dirty ones, or realistic ones, or anything else. The thing about comedy that brings us together is laughter. They show will showcase all of the different genres of comedy, and it's a fantastic show. It's something I look forward to every single week and I hope there is a third season
